MY latest purchase 214 14k case with Champion 14k GF bracelet. The watch and bracelet are in mint condition. I was taken by the dial with the large number markers. Could this be a Swiss case. Not marked Swiss but there are two T's on the bottom of the dial. I currently have eight Accutrons all with 14k cases. Some include a 214 TV, 214 Doctor's dial, 214 alpha Spaceview and others. Thanks for looking

Great addition to your collection. Can you share pictures of your other Accutrons?

Thanks for all the comments. I wanted to mention that the 214 is an M5 1965 production. I will post photo's of some of my other watches.
Just wanted to comment on why I got interested in Accutrons. When I graduated form the University in1964 my first job was at a Naval Research lab in San Francisco . My Supervisor had purchased a new Accutron and I was just amassed at what a beautiful watch and such a good time keeper. I left the lab in 1969 and took a position at Stanford University. I started by collecting German wall regulators and joined the National Watch Association. As time went on I started collecting watches-mostly Breiting and Panerai. As I always searched through Timezone I started noticing last year the availability of Accutron Watches. I couldn't believe that these were the same watches that I had admired in the 1960's and most still keeping time to several minutes a month. I was so taken that I had to have one for my collection. Of course you can never own just one Accutron-so my collection now has grown to eight.

Nice acquisition. Can't wait to see the rest of your 14k collection.

The Ts indicate the use of Tritium(H-3) as the luminous material on watches. We usually see Ts on Swiss watches that are marked "T Swiss T" or "T-Swiss-T." Although usually associated with Swiss Made watches, the use of the Ts may not be exclusively a Swiss thing. The best way to know if your watch has Swiss origins will be found on the inside of the case back.
